Brand new 64 bit architecture-based data base management system design

The project aims to carry out research and a development process for a new generation architecture of a 64 bit based data base management system design and approve the copyright of the newly developed products.

Since 1980, software development companies have been focused on data storage solutions, in line with time to market requirements. The technology was expensive, the price being substantially affected by the computer memory size. Database management systems were the SQL-based (Structured Query Language-based) and those that are used today, but there is a solutions gap regarding the market demand for new, quality products. Today, when computer memory (RAM - Random Access Memory) is no longer an expensive luxury item, and is accessible to all, a much larger and more crucial criterion is the time spent by the user searching for information or selecting data. 32-bit data (today's most commonly used technology in mass market data processing equipment) computers work with whole numbers, records and 32-bit mass memory addresses. 64-bit data is also working with whole numbers and records, but already the 64-bit passing memory addresses. This gives substantially larger data processing platform scalability features. 32-bit healthy figures addressed restricting the quantity of memory (RAM) so that, even if your computer has installed the 8GB memory, the 32-bit system will be able to use only 4GB. 64-bit memory addresses are much higher, allowing the address much more memory. Since the registers and the healthy figures are higher, then more data can be treated, thereby improving performance by processing these data volumes. 64-bit processors are expected to dominate the market at the end of 2009. Today's widely used 32-bit system addresses space limitations and this will be the main obstacle to the data processing capacity. There is already a rapidly growing need for transition to 64-bit systems. Over the past few years, the 64-bit systems have begun to grow strongly, e.g. - Intel x86-64 CPU, AMD Opteron, Intel Itanium, IBM POWER, 64-bit architecture. In developing new products for the Server (64-bit) version, it will be possible to acquire database application market segments that already take place with 64-bit architecture systems and Server (64-bit) versions. The market includes: global Fortune 500 companies, large national banks and financial institutions, large national IT (Information Technology) systems for the public sector, etc. This is a market sector where the objective is the largest amounts of data and the need to treat them very effectively. This is the main advantage of the Server. Basically the target market is located outside of LATVIA - the EUROPEAN UNION, RUSSIA, the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries, the U.S. and elsewhere. This market is vital for the IT industry segment. The project’s main participant CLUSTERPOINT was founded in 2006, thanks to an initiative, which came from local Latvian software developer IMPRIMATUR CAPITAL INVESTMENT COMPANY LTD (UK) and its interest in innovative product development and its financial support. The company's main activity is software development, integration and trade. Thanks to the employees' vast experience and professional knowledge of IT software development, in already the first two years of activities, CLUSTERPOINT successfully developed and offered to the global market its first product line: a 32-bit platform architecture-based database management product line, which currently consists of the following products: Database Management System; server platform Search Appliance and Network Traffic surveillance system. Similar functional products on the market are also offered by world renowned companies like Microsoft, Oracle and IBM. The project is being implemented by three partners – the main participant CLUSTERPOINT (LATVIA) is responsible for research and development activities within the project, IMPRIMATUR CAPITAL (UNITED KINGDOM) is responsible for product development and market research to provide new product testing with real end-users, and the INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE (LATVIA) will provide research help to CLUSTERPOINT and methodological support during the whole project. The project partners are going to sign a Consortium Agreement.
